Amarilys Henderson // Part 2 Sketch Noting Series: The Secret to Drawing Faces

Episode 211. Aired Friday, April 21, 2017.

Friday, April 21 @ 2:30 pm ET / 11:30 am PT, I will be interviewing entrepreneur, watercolor artist, teacher, and illustrator Amarilys Henderson. She will tell us about how simplifying the face can make all the difference and give us some tips and common hangups when people are drawing faces. We will talk about drawing different expressions, faces from different angles, and how shapes and colors play a role in communicating the vibe and feel of the subject.

She is an incredible illustrator and we will peek behind the curtain and see how she is expanding her business and what she is doing to stay creative and keep the ideas flowing.
